nvidia 455.28 is incompatible with linux >= 5.9

2020-10-21 - Sven-Hendrik Haase

nvidia is currently partially incompatible with linux >= 5.9 [1] [2]. While graphics should work fine, CUDA, OpenCL, and likely other features are broken. Users who’ve already upgraded and need those features are advised to switch to the linux-lts kernel for the time being until a fix for nvidia is available.

https://www.archlinux.org/news/nvidia-45528-is-incompatible-with-linux-59/


nvidia-450xx-utils and nvidia-440xx-utils are in conflict

Please click the ► at the beginning of this line to view this solution
  • If you get the following error message:

    :: nvidia-450xx-utils and nvidia-440xx-utils are in conflict (nvidia-libgl). Remove nvidia-440xx-utils? [y/N] y

Warning: do not reboot until this procedure tells you to starting from the next step!

  • Please note the exact nVidia driver you have running by executing:

    mhwd --listinstalled
    
  • Please note the kernel(s) you’ve got installed and remove anything 440-related, including CUDA by executing:

    pamac remove nvidia-440xx-utils linuxZZ-nvidia-440xx cuda nvtop
    

    where ZZ is/are the kernel version(s) you’re running.

  • Repeat for all the kernel versions you have

    How do I know which kernel versions I have?
    • execute ls /boot/linux*
    • any nulber after linux before the - (minus sign) are the kernel(s) you have installed
  • If you would have any other old nVidia drivers that you don’t need any more because your card is supported by the 450 series get rid of them as well.

  • now install the same family of 450 driver you had for the 440 driver, by executing:

    mhwd --install pci Your450Family
    

    where Your450Family is obviously one of video-hybrid-amd-nvidia-440xx-prime OR video-nvidia-440xx that you noted above

  • And finally:

    sudo reboot
    

If this would not have solved your issue, please open a new issue here and state that you followed this procedure already.


Warning: directory permissions differ on /var/lib/dhcpcd/

followed by:

filesystem: 700 package: 755

Please click the ► at the beginning of this line to view this solution
  • The solution:

    sudo chmod 755 /var/lib/dhcpcd/
    
  • The explanation:
    The DHCP Daemon expects the security permissions to be 755 but your system is set to 700. This is just a warning (today) but to ensure you remain up-to-date with the latest and greatest security rules it’s advised to execute the above command.


virtualbox NS_ERROR_FAILURE (0x80004005)

Please click the ► at the beginning of this line to view this solution
  • The solution:
  1. You need to add your user back into the virtualbox user group

    sudo usermod --append --groups vboxusers $USER
    

    (Change $USER to the correct user name if not for yourself)

  2. Upgrade the VirtualBox extension pack to the latest version by executing:

    pamac build virtualbox-ext-oracle
    

PAM and PAMBASE got updated, which might prevent you from login

Please click the ► at the beginning of this line to view more detailed information

Due to updates from pambase and pam you might take care about any .pacnew files in /etc/pam.d as for example pam_tally, pam_tally2 and pam_cracklib got deprecated. Read in the ArchWiki about managing those files.

Typical issue:

For recovery, it is enough to boot with kernel option “systemd.unit=rescue.target”, then proceed into /etc/pam.d and merge “system-auth” and “system-auth.pacnew”


Bad font rendering after freetype2 upgrade

Please click the ► at the beginning of this line to view more detailed information

There were some changes in the freetype2 version 2.10.3 which enable subpixel rendering.
This might look ugly without enabling lcdfilter at the same time.

You can create a symlink in /etc/fonts/conf.d/ to enable “lcddefault” as filter.

sudo ln -s /etc/fonts/conf.avail/11-lcdfilter-default.conf /etc/fonts/conf.d/

System takes a long time to boot

If you’ve got errors like Failed to start Network Manager Wait Online. you can try removing systemd from passwd and group in /etc/nsswitch.conf as described here
Update: If you can see the line
dbus-daemon[1453]: [system] Connection has not authenticated soon enough, closing it (auth_timeout=30000ms, elapsed: 45146ms)
in in your dbus log ( journalctl -b -u dbus ), the new/better workaround is to switch cups from service to socket as described here:
systemctl disable org.cups.cupsd.service
systemctl enable org.cups.cupsd.socket

I think I’ve some font problems

With the update of fontconfig some major rules how fonts get applied changed. Make sure that your system has ttf-dejavu installed. A more in depth explanation can be found here.

Gnome-shell-extension-pop-shell is currently incompatible with wayland

… and causes the system to freeze when the first window is tiled and can render it unbootable. Solution is a hard reset and disabling either pop shell or wayland. If the system becomes unbootable, use a live USB to edit /etc/gdm/custom.conf to disable wayland and reboot.

Don’t know if it’s the placebo effect but the new 455 drivers -or so I want to believe :grin: - made the system blazingly fast! :rocket: Thanks!

@philm is there a reason why you didn’t push the latest (86.0.4240.75-1) chromium release?

Kernel 4.19, Cinnamon, updated via pamac-gui. Works. Had to reboot twice (to make Firefox work) but fine now.
Note: In the stable-branch in my point of view pamac-gui should be THE way to go. User-friendly and simple. Very satisfied.

Hi,
I get the following:

Device sdc is a usb drive that initiallly had a Manjaro ISO on it.
I re-partitioned it and reformatted it.
It is my Borg Backup drive.

I think the warning is because the drive is seen as bootable.

Can I make it un-bootable and therefore keep the data on the drive AND get rid of the warning?

Or have misunderstood the Warning. :man_shrugging:

yeah don’t do it (yet), details:

Update your mirrors and force refresh your database, then try to update.

I second this. I figured this wouldn’t be an issue because I was moving up to the 455 version, but I’ve noticed weird freezing with it and Plasma or X11. Unfortunately, now I can’t downgrade back to 450 because of the dependency issue.

I had the same issue as you. Removing the 450xx drivers and installing the newest 455xx fixed it!
Here are the commands I used:
sudo mhwd -r pci video-nvidia-450xx
sudo mhwd -i pci video-nvidia-455xx

# mhwd --install pci video-nvidia-455xx
Error: config 'video-nvidia-455xx' conflicts with config(s): video-nvidia-450xx

This is without any Nvidia drivers installed.

Edit: managed to upgrade to 455 by running:
sudo mhwd -r pci video-nvidia-450xx
sudo mhwd -i pci video-nvidia-455xx

That’s similar to what I did, but I found the 455xx drivers to make Plasma unstable and freeze frequently.
